the lights are on. where the lights are off and mongolia and parts of china, and unfortunately, my state of alaska. this is not such a prosperous area. how we utilize this is basic premise, starting from energy is good and moving from their is part of how we want to launch this discussion. and contained within this, again, five pretty simple propositions. we need to move to an energy policy that is abundant, affordable, clean, diverse, secure. when you look at energy in that context, it really does help give you some parameters and guidelines as to how to move forward. as you go through this proposal -- again, think about it in the context which i am offering yet. not legislation. the first question is going to be when we will see the first bill. you will see legislation move forward based on the conversations, based on debate and dialogue on issues. whether it is how we advance revenue sharing or how we put in place and export policy that is not only go ahead -- good for jobs, working with the balance of trade that is so incredibly important. establishe trying to here is a good directio

china has more than doubled its investment in developing new agricultural technologies. those are the kinds of fort decided policies that are enabling china to emerge as a world power and in which we frankly need to get back to. as we shift our focus and our resources towards smarter, more constructive forms of international interaction, it is critical that feed security remained at the center of shading a secure world. when it comes to diplomacy, that means forging stronger public, private, and government-to- government relations, like usaid's promised to feed the future initiative, and focus on local solutions to enable countries to take ownership of their own allotment -- development. it means ensuring 500 million farmers can participate meaningfully in democratic and governing their own countries. these farmers often have no voice in their future. more specifically, it means empowering women who represent 43% of small holders and are the majority of farmers now and over 30 countries. land rights and ownership can help women realize their potential, which benefits families,

with the first lady's office in terms of needing to order additional pieces of presidential china that would be used for state dinners as well. we had supplements made of the fdr service and the wilson service to fill out those services, because they had been depleted by breakage and so forth over the years. in the year 2000 when the white house historical association offered to fund a new state service, we work closely with mrs. clinton in deciding about the colors, the designs that would go on the service, how those particular colors would looked in the various settings in the state dining room are the east room. i do remember mrs. clinton's mother was living in the house at the time. she would come to some of these little meetings about showing samples from the porcelain factory. none of them seem to be satisfactory. she said of in the bathroom of my suite is a beautiful yellow color. she said i think we should try that yellow color. so we got a sample of the wallpaper and sent it off to lennox, and they did some samples, and it worked out beautifully. i think that was mrs. rodham's legac

by europe at large or china somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world. they are no longer worried about our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores. there is very little doubt in any circles about america's ability to be in a position to lead the world in the 21st century. not only in terms of foreign policy, but economically. the american people are ready to get up as a civil-rights leader. the american people are tired of being tired. they're ready to get up and move. we are in a good position to lead the world. that is why i think they're so frustrated by what they see and what they don't see here in washington. their frustration is turning into anger. i found an interesting dynamic. whether it was a democrat or republican governor i heard from several of you how do you deal with this? how do you deal with the congress. no distinction, but how you deal with this? you deal with legislatures that are split. you represent a minority party. you get on very well. the accomplish things in your home state. that is the way it used to work and we can mak

"the post," the headline is specifically looking at china. "chinese companies invested $6.5 billion in the united states last year. that's a record, and a 17% increase over the prior year. but that's also about the same amount invested in the united states by spain." secretary of state hillary clinton and her performance over the last four years. giving you an opportunity to assess how she did in the position. lawrence in st. paul, an abandoned line. caller -- independent line. caller: i think she has done an admirable job to i would not assess how well she did based on how many miles to travel. but here is what bothers me -- the cheerleading think versus effectiveness. i am not saying she wasn't effective, but i think that condoleezza rice was one of the most idynamic individuals to evr serve. she was admirable to me. she was great. she is articulate, very well educated, did some wonderful things, knew how to handle the power of male egos. but the press would not give her the same accolades, the general media would not give for this and accolades, not because she was competent, but

come in made with products from china and get put in the dump. there filling the city with digital fabrication labs. it is a globally connected for knowledge. they are bringing back into the city skills and jobs that were far away. any one of those products, the incremental timer doesn't compete with the factory. one is if everything make is different. if you change the supply chain so it is local, and one is if you value the role of local production in the economy. all of those things are leading to this sort of infrastructure as a key part of urban planning. >> this whole maker movement, there is something like you're talking about that established in detroit. those are wonderful things and you played an important role in supporting those of the white house. i'm not saying it's not real or important, it's just not going to be the savior we are talking about where we need another 2 million manufacturing jobs. i don't think we should be putting all our eggs in that basket. it's a nice thing and it's important, but it's not the savior. >> the discussion here has some of national pol

it is three big factors, china, china, china. u.s. is still a large player it is smaller than it used to be. as long as we have continued growth in demand in place like china buying 24 billion cars followed by india. you will see a powerful movement forward so with tight supplies fortunately, we're seeing positive aspects here in the u.s. what you do see is a case of a relatively tight market. what you've seen is total demand is down, gasoline demand is down which is tied more like retail sale, employment and so on. diesel demand is also down. i carefully compare these diesel demand numbers with the truck numbers, they should move together. they pretty much follow each other. jet fuel has been down for 2012 and a lot of that is packing planes full and having more efficient aircraft and so on. if i turn to the fourth quarter, we see things are still down. so in particular, the diesel demand is down. when i heard that g.d.p. was down it did not surprise me because that is tightly tied to a component of the economy. again, we saw a decline of total overall petroleum and gasoline demand. the go

. europe is china's largest export your. china is our fastest growing export partner. if europe goes into the can, the whole triangle goes in the can. that is a bad idea. this would be huge on both sides of the pond. there are a lot of big trade agreements that have been talked about for a long time. these would put cash on the table right now. it is important that we welcome global investment. we want people to bring their cash here. come here and invest or come here and visit. tourism is a great way. we like that. most people do not understand how many jobs that creates. millions of jobs. we need to remove regulatory barriers and stem that tide of the huge regulatory tsunami that is being planned for the next four years. you remember we all went to school. we study there were three parts of government -- administrative part, the legislative part, and the judicial part. i'm racking my brain. hell, i do not remember anything about the regulatory part. we better do something. our economy thrives when the hand of government is relatively light and giving entrepreneurs the freedom to in

under stalin, and now sits on in china, these things led to the -- and now it's a town -- mai tse tung in china. millions of people lost their lives in the circumstances. guest: i have heard the comments that richard made, made before. certainly, the shooting in tucson, ariz., was not a gun- free zone. the shooting just yesterday las vegas was not a gun-free zone. they happen everywhere. unfortunately, the conversation that we're talking about, background checks for example, making sure they are down on everybody, get extrapolated to this degree that ultimately, this will result in people getting their doors kicked open and having someone take their guns. that is not the conversation at all. that is not what any of these bills or legislation will do it is unconstitutional to do that. we have the decision that you cannot ban guns. i think that is a great decision. it removes the extreme position that everyone is quite drop their guns taken away. setting background checks on all gun sales is a good way to move forward. host: one man says, his advice, by a shotgun. -- the vice president,

in research, some other countries will. china is not the only example, and it is rapidly increasing its research as a percent of gdp. for us this will go the other way. china's gdp is smaller than the united states', but its economy is growing much faster, and by some calculations their total exports to imports equal to what ours are today. unless we act, we can expect that china's increase in research funding and funding of others will mean that the relative competitiveness of the u.s. will weaken, probably in ways that go to our historical core strengths. sequestration is unnecessary, and it is avoidable. we absolutely must deal with the budget deficit. but this massive indiscriminate-type approach is counterproductive. such cuts will dampen growth and thereby reduce tax revenue. such cuts definitely are not dealing with the deficit over a long term. with less than three weeks away from having these massive cuts, i'm here to join others in urging that president obama, congressional leaders come together for the sake of america's people and end this sequestration. together, we before y
